Oh, but read more carefully, it already allows at least one RFC 822
exception in Maintainer fields.
Otherwise we could also publically lambast people like:
% egrep '^Maintainer: .*,' *|sort -u
main.Packages:Maintainer: Adam C. Powell, IV <email@example.com>
main.Packages:Maintainer: Eric Gillespie, Jr. <firstname.lastname@example.org>
main.Packages:Maintainer: James Penny (Midway, Kentucky) (No Comment) <email@example.com>
main.Packages:Maintainer: John H. Robinson, IV <firstname.lastname@example.org>
main.Packages:Maintainer: Thomas Bushnell, BSG <email@example.com>
